Data sets

IASI CO profile level-2 data G. Francis

NCEP FNL operational model global tropospheric analyses continuing from July 1999 National Centers for Environmental Prediction/National Weather Service/NOAA/U.S. Department of Commerce

OMI 3 profile data (OMPROFOZ) K. Yang, X. Liu, and P. K. Bhartia

Short summary
We analyze upper tropospheric CO and O3 using satellite data from limb-viewing (MLS) and nadir-viewing (IASI and OMI) sensors, together with dynamical variables, to examine how the two types of data complement each other in representing the chemical variability associated with the day-to-day dynamical variability in the Asian summer monsoon anticyclone. The results provide new observational evidence of eddy shedding in upper tropospheric CO distribution.
